Some 2013 New York Mets Predictions
-I was all prepared to like Collin Cowgill. He comes across to me as a gamer. I guy who I'd like having around as a 4th outfield. I'm not sure he is an everyday player and I'm afraid I'll turn on him at some point this season.
-Jon Niese will win 14-15 games and pitch well causing people to say things like, "he could have won 18 games on a contender."
-Ike Davis will again hit around 32 homeruns and drive in 90 runs. But his batting average will get back to the .260 range.
-Marlon Byrd does not finish 2013 as a member of the New York Mets.
-Shawn Marcum has a 3.50 ERA...but only has 11 starts.
-Brandon Lyon has double digit saves.
-Lucas Duda will hit 25 home runs.
-Daniel Murphy will miss an extended period of time and will never regain the second base job from Jordany Valdespin.
-Once again the Mets will be surprisingly around the .500 mark around the All-Star Break before the wheels come off and the cream starts rising to the top.
-The Mets will finish over their Vegas win total of 74.5.
Happy Opening Day!
